This is only the second time I've seen the Merganser in this location. Today he entertained me with a bath.

Wow, Don, that's quite a series of bright, clear shots. She really put on a show for you!

Thanks so much Ray. To my mind the other shots are just supporting roles for #2.

Thanks very much for the comments Bret. You would think that after more than 40 years of keyboarding experiences I wouldn't make a typo like that. ;-)a

Thanks much Ian. She was quite the actor but kept an eye on me the whole time.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
